    Three of my clients are graphics departments, using Macs of course, in
    predominantly PC companies running Lotus Notes servers. I can't say a
    whole lot about Notes except to tell you that the Mac clients are
    working fine in OS 9 (Notes 4 through 6) and OS X (Notes 6). Version 5
    also works well in Classic mode (haven't tried that with 4).

    Is it possible to have a positive experience with Notes on any platform?

    You've got that right. When I got to my current employer, I commented
    "Oh good, you use Notes", which got a very odd look. Until I explained
    that I came from a place using MS Exchange.

    True enough. My current employer uses IMAP (so just about any client
    will do) but is thinking about moving to Exchange.

    I'm trying to figure out how to take a tab-delimited contact list from
    Entourage and get it into the contact list in Lotus notes --- nothing
    seems to work. I'm having to go from a Mac platform to the PC - using
    a PC-version of Lotus (which I never used before)

    I've not really used it but I've fixed it when it broke on several users
    machines. It gets confused easily and loses track of it's settings, it
    causes file corruption in unrelated files (like the LaserWriter driver).

    It's BAD. It's EVIL.

    It's widely considered THE worst software ever.

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

    Oh, and yes, I'm holding back.

    His options are Lotus Notes on a PC running Windows, or Lotus Notes
    on a Mac. Of the two, which would you choose?

    I've been using it from July 2002 thru November 2002 in OS 9 and from then on
    in OS X and it's worked very well for me with not so much as a hiccup. I'm
    the one Mac guy in a company of perhaps 4000 Windows seats.
